Distribution of Private State Property in Tripoli City, Mina and Beddaoui

The Lebanese State owns 481 properties in the city of Tripoli, the majority of which are located in the “Trablous jardins” and “Ez-Zeitoun” cadastral areas. In the adjacent city of Mina, the number of state-owned properties reaches 94, with 60% of them located within the “Mina Jardins” cadastral area. The largest number of these properties is registered under the names of the municipalities of Tripoli and Mina, the Council for Development and Reconstruction (CDR), and the International Fair of Lebanon. Most of them are linked to the implementation of projects to develop the waterfront and establish the International Fair, now known as the Rachid Karami International Fair (RKIF), in line with the vision that was drawn for the city in the 1950s and 1960s. Some of these properties are also the result of governmental land consolidation and subdivision projects, which allowed the state to acquire 25% of the total land area subject to consolidation and subdivision within the city. However, one cannot neglect the lands that the government allocated for housing within the city, whether they were unbuilt or used to build actual public housing projects.
